Fighters Biography

What do you do for fight preparation?

I train 3 to 4 times a day, 6 days a week. Mornings are MMA followed by a conditioning session and evenings are usually Muay Thai and BJJ or MMA.

When and why did you start martial arts training?

I started at the end of November 2011, I’ve always been interested in martial arts since a young age, now it’s a lifestyle for me.

How did you transition to MMA?

I transitioned from pure BJJ to MMA as I loved the fact that you could use various ways to finish a fight.

Added Detail

  • Missed out on his debut at EFC 30 (Cape Town) due to medical reasons
  • CFL Champion - Respected amateur organisation
  • Undefeated as an amateur
  • Performance bonus winner
